Timmy and Jerod are eating cupcakes. If they each can eat two cupcakes in 3 minutes, how long will it take the two of them to eat 18 cupcakes? EXPLAIN
2c--->3m 18c--->x m cross multiply x=(18*3)/2=27 minutes
i dont understand why you put m and all that
c for cupcakes and m for minutes
Maybe I am reading it wrong each can eat 2 in 3 minutes so 4 in 3 minutes or 16 in 12 minutes plus another 2 in 1 and a half minutes is 13 and a half minutes.
Ur not reading it wrong,I was :/ ur right :)
K, no problem...:-) Wasn't sure myself...
